The best strawberries you’ll ever taste will have to come from your own garden, because fully ripened, home-grown strawberries have a rich, aromatic flavor unmatched by anything you can buy in the supermarket.
Strawberries are easy to grow, but can take up a lot of room when planted in a traditional “strawberry patch”. You need to give strawberries room for runners by planting them 18 inches apart. That entails a considerable amount of space if you intend to grow even just a handful of plants.
This project will give you home grown strawberries while taking up only a fraction of the space of a typical garden. A pyramid planter is an ideal way of growing great quantity of garden produce in a limited garden space.
They’re easy and inexpensive to build, especially when made from leftover timber from your previous projects. This project should only take you a weekend to finish, as long as you have all the materials and tools needed.
